Haha, never have shame, I've probably been stepped a couple times by one of your like-minded 10's when I have been in that seek and destroy mode..... Highly embarrassing... Just a shame that referees are accepting "I was committed less and less these days"

That was my argument Felipe, the problem is as a group we are the ones who need to police this, not World Rugby, because it's a further grey area.

I posted a link above to Rory Kocketts red card for a slap to the face, I don't believe the other player 'dived', but really you never know, it might have hit Pape perfectly ...and let's say it did hit him in the perfect spot, imagine how pissed he'd be when he stood up and found himself on the end of a yellow card for playacting! (Haha)... Obviously cue jokes about how he should toughen up etc, but joking aside, it's a real headache for any official!

I know that because Stringer is a terrier, but point still standing, if a small bloke gets this treatment, then is it ok if he falls?

I actually saw the link that you pointed out. One is a complete and utter filthy scumbag, and the other is Hartley! Both SHOULD be reprimanded, but only Hartley will...

"We KNOW we'd all get along if we were arguing about this in the pub" *snigger* if you say so....

Agreed on all other points...

He's organising a midnight vigil and a collection for Papes family to support them through this brutal time! Pape was mercilessly cut down in his prime by a vicious little back! Horrendous stuff, 100yr ban for the centre!

Haha, poor little bloke, but you must get what I mean though... I mean we can be 99% sure that this was play acting, or even 99.9% but no one but Pape knows exactly what happened, that is the part I don't like...

Put yourself in Papes position, you just dived like this and now the press is hot on your heels, you have two choices, come out and say "yup, I dived, not really something I'm proud of, but I did it...." Or, you say, "actually as he hit me, part of his hand hit my jaw, and it resulted in my biting my tongue, it also hit my nose which really stunned me, so I fell back to reasses what just happened, it really stunned me, but i personally don't think it should be a red card"...that way you don't look like a big girls blouse and you've stuck up for a bloke that people feel you got sent off....

So it's now become a matter than needs policing whereas it more or less was self policed....you just didn't so it...

A while back there was a massive open hand slap on a player in the SH which made him fall, I genuinely don't believe he dived, but it knocked him down - I'll try and link it....

For the record, I do think this was a dive, before anyone suggests I feel anything different...
